OPP and MNR asking the public to be Bear Wise

Bracebridge and Huntsville OPP have recently reported on a number of bear calls coming into the dispatches.
While the OPP is mandated to respond to calls where bears are a threat to the public, there are instances where you may be making the wrong call.
Moose FM hit the streets to find out who you would call if you spotted a bear.
You should only call police if the bear is in an urban area where it can come into contact with people and never call 9-1-1 unless the bear is acting aggressively or posing an immediate threat to you or others.
If you spot a bear in the wild or in an area where it won’t come into direct contact with people, you can call the MNR Bear Wise line.
The non-emergency line for the OPP is 1-888-310-1122.
